Building Community Support Through Programming

Building Community Support through Summer Reading & Year-Round Collaboration – Programming for All Ages Workshop: Wednesday, March 25 from 10:00am – 12:00pm @MHLS.

Libraries have long been committed to building healthy, thriving communities, but they are now seeing an increased need to create and build strategic partnerships and expand relationships with the larger community.

Family programming is a great way to reach people in your community. Hear from a panel of practitioners about programming events they designed with community partners, which brought families in to enjoy the library together, and resulted in year-round collaborations.

Guest presenters are:

  • Jeanne Bogino (New Lebanon Library partnering with Flying Deer Nature Center)
  • Nicole Guenkel (Poughkeepsie Public Library District partnering with Cornell Cooperative Extension)
  • Lucille Merry (Desmond-Fish Library partnering with Garrison Art Center)
  • Katie Scott-Childress (Olive Free Library partnering with Town of Olive Recreation Program & Camp)
